Songfacts®:

  • This feel-good song finds Granger Smith reflecting on all the good times in life as he realizes his lady love is always a part of them.

    You're in it
    Every single good time
    When I press rewind in my mind yeah I find
    You're in it


    The sentimental track was written by Nashville veterans Mark Nesler (Keith Urban's "You Look Good In My Shirt," Billy Currington "Let Me Down Easy") and Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley's "I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song)," Darius Rucker's "Alright"). The third person on the credits is newcomer Justin Adams, for whom this is his first major cut as a songwriter.
  • The heartwarming lyric video features Granger Smith's daughter London writing out the lyrics - spelling errors and all. Her proud daddy tweeted: "I may be a little biased, but I think this is the best lyric video we've ever released... (camera work by yours truly)."
  • The song's music video features Granger driving a getaway car for two bank robbers, played by Texas country artists Parker McCollum and Koe Wetzel. His love interest is the singer's actress wife Amber Bartlett Smith who has featured in several of his clips including the one for When the Good Guys Win's lead single "Happens Like That." The couple actually met when Amber auditioned for one of his visuals back in 2009.

    "I've told her it's getting to the point where we've done so many together that it would be really weird if all of a sudden I came up with a video where there was an actual love interest and it wasn't her," Smith said to People. "I just sent her a text and I said, hey, I'll shoot you the dates, but I think you're going to be in the next video."
